Dark & Sexy Beats

Noah_Slee_CantLetGoCoverFinal
Many times, music is about timing.About these perfect moments when a culture, a generation, and a monetary reality collide with or without the help of a marketing strategy to make styles or genres relevant.

However, many of these times, music also comes from deep inside of an artist’s soul, with no interest but to share creativity, a message or art.

Today’s post will try to converge these 2 worlds: Artistic beauty & sonic relevance.

Because of our blog schedule we couldn’t premiere it on the same day as Vice, but our first guest Noah Slee from New Zealand, was raised on a diet of funk, soul, blues and rock, Noah has clearly taken a page from the great Afro-American songbook. But rather than riding waves of retro, his is an urge to explore uncharted territory.

Via SoundCloud he connected with Kreuzberg production team Kitschkrieg and they quickly bonded over a shared love for timeless songwriting and future-minded beats.

To compensate, Mad Decent gets the exlsuive premiere for one of the remixes from Berlin-based producers NGHT DRPS (Through MySpeakers), “Can’t Let Go” is a first taste of what to expect: the story of a much-travelled man and natural born music maker, constantly looking for that bittersweet spot where sounds collide and collapse to reveal pure beauty.

Our second guest are a familiar name for the dark bass scene: ILLUMINVTY has released their brilliant new track, which sounds like if die artwoord meets mr carmack and Linkin’ park.

Last but not least, Alina Baraz shows us how it is done.

Hola & Adios

Fenix EP

Every artist will have a different story about Creative Process. For some it becomes as easy as getting inspired by anything, while for others the actual motivation, might require not only a gargantuan amount of thought, but also logistics and great timing.

In the digital era, Creative Process may cost an artist ‘relevance’ if he or she decides to take a hiatus or focus in doing a completely new artistic direction, perhaps, redefining his own sound or actually pursuing a new signature of style.

Today’s post we welcome again one of the most active players in the early moombahton era as well as being the link between 3Ball prehispanico and Bass for most of the music blogs.
Mexican Producer, Javier Estrada.

We also say good bye to one legendary Bass act from Germany called Hat+Hoodie, who at some point was one of the few ones leading the Bass tropical scene in Europe alongside Schlachthofbronx. H+H decided to call it quits, and hopefully we will be hearing about his new artistic endeavors very soon.

Let’s begin with Javier Estrada, who after storming the world with his unique style and getting features in every single bass blog, decided to take a release hiatus, and focus his energy on building a presence in Mexican club scene. Time passed by and now Javier returns with a great 13 track album called Fenix, doing remixes and collaborations with A Tribe Called Red, Boogat, Evdi Sound and many more.

On Fenix we will find a mature sound, still very explosive, and a freshly reminder on why Javier at some point was the only person Diplo followed on his own SC.

Download the 13 track album for FREE >>>right here<<<

Also dropping a great Bass track with Miami’s Evdi Sound called Enrolo Uno

Or a Pow WoW, meets Cuban Orisha’s bass with some Jungle Terror

Moving to our second guest of today.

Now, this is a great way to say good bye.

As mentioned before, H+H final EP makes it to Mad Decent. More Fyah is a fierce, heavy, and overall, very bouncy display of German Bass that has been set for Free download as well courtesy of UK’s Club Popozuda.

Next in line comes from Mixcloud. Stunning. Impressive. and sadly, overlooked releases from the guys of Zlow & Low, who are the only ones keeping the Zouk Bass movement alive with additions from all over the planet.

Kill Dance Move from Sweden shows us how the slow-mo is done

ZLOW & LOW- DANCE KILL MOVE //003 by Zlow & Low on Mixcloud

While all the way from Moscow, Chuck Upbeat proves why he is the latest addition to Buraka’s som sistema ENCHUFADA label

ZLOW & LOW- CHUCK UPBEAT //004 by Zlow & Low on Mixcloud

And Last but not least, from Mexico, Pa Kongal bringing some latin flavor to the zouk & Bass game
